Wim Koning is an enthusiastic cargo bike builder. He was present at the ICBF in 2015 and 2016 in Nijmegen with the wedding bike, the funeral bike and street cleaning bike.
It all started in April 2004 when Wim bought a delivery bike from the neighbourhood and refurbished it. It went so well that they decided to go on holiday with the refurbished delivery bike. With no plan in mind, they packed their belongings and just started driving.
Wim Koning really got a taste for it and started refurbishing more and more cargo bikes to give them a new destination.
That’s how he created the ‘FuneralBike’. This funeral cargo bike is specially made for the transport of a deceased person. The cargo bike widens the possibility of filling in your funeral to your own liking. It is an environmentally friendly means of transport and can be agreed with the way of life of the deceased.
The Cargo Bike can also be used to keep the village/city clean. For this purpose, Wim Koning created the Trash Cycle, complete with a large vacuum cleaner.
We are very curious to find out which cargo bikes he’ll bring to the festival this year!
